Just a little experiment I did a few months back. Because my soil is so rock filled, I planted some garlic in containers and some in the ground. Look at the difference in roots and garlic size: the first photo, with giant roots and rich color are the ones in containers, and the smaller garlic in the second photo, with very small roots, were grown in the ground. And, the ground garlic was planted a month before the container garlic. I will definitely continue to grow garlic and all of my root vegetables in containers.

The first tomatoes of the season are setting! These marble-size Candyland tomatoes are in a pot for quick snacking as we pass by.

We had a busy/ productive week getting the veggie garden & berry patch (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries & grapes) prepped and a good chunk planted. This is the first growing season in are home so there was extra work this year building the raised beds and making the garden bigger. In the garden we planted green beans, beets, carrots, potatoes, butternut squash, spaghetti squash, 2 varieties of zucchini & a few different varieties of pumpkins. Some of the things we are still planning to plant are peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, different lettuce varieties, kale, spinach,radish, and different melons. Can’t wait for all the delicious veggies & fruit to come later this summer🌱👨🏼‍🌾👩🏼‍🌾🥕🍓💕 . . . . #growyourownveggies #homegrownveggies #veggiegarden #heirloomvegetables #thehappygardeninglife #growyourownfood #organicgardening #growsomethinggreen #veggiegarden #gardentotable #eatwhatyougrow #growyourfood #homegrown #gardenfresh #greenthumb #growyourown #healthylifestyle #registereddietitian #dietitiansofinstagram #productiveweek #backyardgarden

When the baby says he wants to plant stuff for playtime, we plant stuff!! 🌱 We busted out the catnip and basil seeds and that boy filled the pots, patted the seeds in, and watered them all by himself! 😍 #futuremastergardener 😉

“A world without tomatoes is like a string quartet without violins." ~Laurie Colwin . 🌱 There seems to be a certain amount of controversy amongst gardeners on whether one should prune their tomatoes 🍅—the suckers in the armpit between stems. All of my heirlooms are indeterminate, with a long growing season well into the fall, as compared to determinate, which have a shorter set growing period with all of the fruits coming in at the same time—good for pots and in colder climates with a shorter growing season. I prune mine every few weeks, leaving a few behind, to limit the nutrient hungry foliage and the amount of space they take up. ❓Do you prune your tomato plants❓ . ✨ #tomatoes #tomato #pruning #heirloomtomatoes #tomatoplant #homegrowntomatoes #ediblegarden #gardentotable #kitchengarden #ediblelandscaping #homegrown #vegetablegarden #raisedgardenbeds #lauriecolwin #tomatolove #growyourownfood

Dieses Jahr gibt es einen tollen Zuwachs im Garten: eine Slackline! Da wir nur einen ausreichend starken Baum haben, wird die Slackline an dem anderen Ende mit einem Erdnagel und einem selbstgebauten A-Frame befestigt. . . . #garten #gartengestaltung #gartenideen #gruen #grün #slackline #pflanzen #slacklining #slacklines #natur #naturephotography #gartenfotografie #garden #plants #instagarden #grünesleben #instagardenlovers #instagardeners #gardening #gardenlovers #gardenlove #green #greengreengreen #growsomethinggreen #greenery #thehappygardeninglife

When we moved to our house in October we were left with a climbing rose and two mature lavender bushes. Our neighbour told me the rose would be stunning when it flowered and it hasn't let me down! The first bloom opened today! Isn't she gorgeous! 🌹💕 . . . . . #rose #pinkrose #clumbingrose #iloveroses #beautifulflowers #smelltheroses #bloom #pinkflowers #allotment #allotmentlove #allotmentlife #allotmentuk #ediblegarden #growyourown #gyo #growyourownfood #growwhatyoueat #thehappygardeninglife #thegoodlife #mygarden #vegpatch #plottoplate #kitchengarden #greenthumb #sustainablesprout #girlgardener #organicgarden #groworganic #urbangarden

Hello, from my little botanical paradise. 🌿 It’s been summer-hot on the mountain this week, and so very dry. I’ve been out watering everyday (thank you 400ft well!) trying to keep this young garden of mine green and thriving. Even with the heat I’m grateful for these chores that keep me inspired, thriving and grounded. This is my happy place for sure. 💗🌻 #thehappygardeninglife Wishing you all a sweet and easy weekend!. . . . #homesteading #homesteadersofamerica #organicgardening #permaculture #iamamodernfarmer #consciousliving #selfsufficientliving #sustainablegardening #womenwhofarm #countryliving #permaculturefarm #growfoodnotlawns #foodforest #permaculturedesign #wncmountains #farmlifebestlife #iamcountryside #growyourownfood

Not your average Friday....registered our notice of marriage, tested out my new strimmer and waited with the other plotholders for the controlled explosion of an unexploded WWII bomb, which had caused many local people to be evacuated from their homes. Enjoying golden hour, and being the last person on site ✌️

Frustrating week. Reminded me why I chose not to pursue a career in Psychiatry though the mind is incredibly fascinating. As I walked up to the front door I spied this little rose bud right outside ❤️. Cheered me up! . . And then I remembered it’s a THREE day weekend & I get to enjoy all three days as I am not on shift- yay!!! And and and guess what else I remembered?! . . Just over 2 months till I start my job in Paediatric surgery. Now THAT is positively a cause for celebration 😀. . . Have a wonderful bank holiday weekend, everyone!!!! . . (We call it Core Surgical Training in the UK. Think most of the world calls it Surgical Residency? For my friends outside the NHS: in the UK we rotate through different specialties during our first 2 years as a Doctor before we are allowed to proceed to specialty jobs, if we wanted to. This is to create a good basic Doctor first, I suppose.) #blog #doctor #surgery #weekend #weekendvibes #intentionalliving #debtfreejourney #debtfreecommunity #roses #flowersofinstagram #thehappygardeninglife #ourgarden #springflowers #greenthumb #gardeningtherapy

Did you know that when you grow potatoes you need to “mound” more soil onto the plant as it grows to encourage more potatoes?⠀ .⠀ Potatoes are a nightshade just like tomatoes, which means they’ll create roots from the stem—and in this case, potato plant “roots” are actually potatoes! So the more of the stem that gets buried, the more potatoes you get. We’re growing our potatoes in 30-gallon grow bags in this year (tap the link in my profile to see the ones we’re using). We started the grow bags rolled down with only about 6” soil in, then we’ve been unrolling the sides of the bags and adding soil as the plants grow. We eventually want to have some 3’ x 15’ beds for growing crops like this, but the budget just didn’t allow for it this year, so grow bags it is!⠀ .⠀ (Also, we’re still putting gravel down in the garden. Covering a 2000 square foot area in gravel one shovelful at a time is a lonnnngggg process.) #someonebuymeatractoralready ⠀ ▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸⠀ ▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸⠀ Follow 👉 @wholefully ⠀ Tag your stuff 👉 #wholefully ⠀ ▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸⠀ ▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸⠀ #gardenlife #gardener #Gardenersofinstagram #growyourownfood #Ediblegarden #organicgardening #thehappygardeninglife #gardentotable #vegetablegarden #growsomethinggreen #gardenlove #inmygarden #gardensofinstagram #veggiepatch #kitchengarden #Organicgarden #veggiegarden #growfoodnotlawns #hobbyfarm #homestead #homesteading #homesteader #vegetablegardener #rurallife #countrylife #zone6 #zone6garden #homegrownveggies

About to get on a plane to Dallas to see my fam and already missing our little farm and chicken gals but thought I would do a little #gardenshare of the before and after of our dream garden... We bought our home a little over a year ago and when I saw the space that used to be horse corrals I knew it was where we would build our dream garden...and we have done just that!!! We knew we didn’t want horses but I have known for a lifetime that I wanted an extra large vegetable garden...and I got it! So proud of this work of love ❤️ #gardenlife #sitlongtalkmuchlaughoften #lovethisspace #beforeandafter

There’s soooo many opportunities to feel like I’m failing all the time in this job. Between pest control (using organic methods), or the weeding that just never seems to end, or forgetting to water something and overwatering another and the list goes on and on and on. But then I have little moments, like this one. Where I harvest a bucket of blooms like these and I feel like I must be doing one or two things right and it gives me the encouragement to keep trying. I’ve also started paying close attention to my self-talk and when I have some ugly thoughts about myself or my work I try to remind myself “Is this how I would want my children speaking to themselves?” If the answer is hell no, I turn that shit around real fast and give myself a pep talk. Just some Friday ramblings for ya 😉These blooms are headed to @alicias.florals bouquet workshop this weekend 🙌 #locallygrownflowers #floralinspiration #localflowers #farmfresh #freshflowers #slowflowers #springflowers #canadiangrownflowers #yyjflowers #yyjflorist #farmher #womenwhofarm #blooms #floral #flowers #flowerlovers #farmerflorist #islandgrownflowers #yyjflowers #gardenersofinstagram #thehappygardeninglife #seasonalfloweralliance #bhgflowers #yyjfarmers #bcfarmers #flowerseveryday #flowergarden

Wandering about watering the allotment on an evening after work is one of my most favourite things to do. ❤️ Actually feel like a whole new person when I’m done. It’s a great way to quieten the mind after a busy week and put everything into perspective. I am ready for the weekend now .. and also ready for a gin! Hope everyone has a great bank holiday weekend ☺️ #thehappygardeninglife #epicgardening #organicgarden #happyfriday #selfie #nofilter #allotmentlove #allotment #allotmenteer #allotmentlife #vegetablegarden #veggiegarden #vegpatch #gardener #garden #gardenlove #instagardener #instagarden #gardensofinstagram #gardenersofinstagram #wateringplants #instagardener #instagardenlovers #homegrown #dowhatyoulove #growyourown #growwhatyoueat #growwhatyoulove

Of all the things that we grow, these are my favorite varieties. Yesterday was the last day of school. Next year I have a senior, sophomore, and 8th grader. These things grow so fast! Blink and you'll miss it. At the end of the day, I hope we've given them roots and wings. {swipe to see first day of school pics} . .. . #lastdayofschool #summer #schoolsoutforsummer #summerbreak #garden #thehappygardeninglife #vegetablegarden #backyardgarden #raisedbeds #gardeners #lovemygarden #arizonagarden #organicgarden #greenthumb #desertgardening #urbangardening #gardening #gardeningisfun #backyardgardening #arizonagardener #mybackyard #urbanfarm #urbanorganicgardener #queencreekaz #gilbertaz #mesaaz #chandleraz #zone9b #thepottersbench

I’m soooo enjoying the garden at the moment. Everything is green, alive and the first flowers are here. Lupine is always first, then the pink garlic and on this photo you see the herb patch with blossoming chives. I use the flowers in salads, or make my own pink vinegar. Do you have other recipes for chive flowers?

Зачем тебе столько грядок?? Когда ты закончишь со своей дачей? Слышу я часто вопросы.. . . Та никогда! не закончу)) Я даже не знаю как реагировать.. я же не спрашиваю зачем тебе столько кроссовок? Сороконожка что ли? Или футболок? Серёжек, браслетов, пива, туфель, косметики. Нужное подчеркнуть 🙃 . . А грядок мне мало. Тем более в некоторых сидят ирисы, розы и пионы на доращивании. Это хорошо, что ещё не все тыквы взошли... а то пришлось бы ещё столько же сколотить 🤔 А у меня же проект, рисовали зря что ли? @provincia67 скажи Кать?) . . #instarussia #gardenlife #cottage #country_stilllife #thehappygardeninglife

Brighten up with life with flowers, brighten up your porch with Snazzy plant covers. #handmadedecor #hangingplants Each cover is designed to fit most standard 10" hanging planters. Made with outdoor fabric that is rated for up to 500 hours of sunlight exposure, resists stains, and is water resistant. To maintain the life of the fabric, bring indoors when not in use. Easily clean by wiping down or hand washing with warm water and a mild soap solution. Simply rinse with clear water to prevent dirt from embedding itself into the fabric.

Black currants are among my very favourite shrubs this time of year. One of the first to set fresh green leaves and even though the berries themselves are months away the leaves smell like black currants as I rub them between my fingers as I walk through the garden on my evening "inspections". Black currants make one of my favourite jams, so we always load up the freezer throughout the season, and I am also training my palate to enjoy their sharp powerful flavour fresh off the branch. What are your favourite berries?

Zinnia ‘Jazzy Mix’ (very similar to ‘Persian Carpet’) in the garden last year...this color palette is not in my usual comfort zone, but the ladies at @solabeeflowers converted me. So easy to grow from seed, these beauties blanketed the ground and bloomed until last frost, supplying endless variations of creamy yellow, red, burnt orange and gold flowers. ☀️ It’s part of the “Victorian Christmas” Cutting Garden Collection & sweetens just about any arrangement. #grownfromseed

Native Columbine–Aquilegia canadensis. Fun fact: It migrated to North America tens of thousands of years ago, from Asia, across the Bering land bridge into Alaska. Native American men rubbed crushed seeds on their hands as a love charm.

Continuing on the last post about Columbine... I stumbled on this pure white variety at the New York Botanical Garden. It does really look like a circle of five doves! Peace out.
